The vet is coming out tonight

Postby Jen » Wed May 06, 2015 9:51 am

:bawl:

Roscoe collapsed Sunday night and could barely walk. He has had a rough two days, and he just looks done. So far it has been an expression of "this sucks but I'm still here." Last night, it was, "I'm so tired of this." I'm home with him today, and vet will come after closing tonight. He's sleeping off the max dose of Tramadol right now, so I hope he stays comfortable the rest of the day.

Oh Jen. I'm so sorry. The world has been a better place because Roscoe has been in it. As much as I'll miss hearing about him, I know it's nothing compared to you and J.

Oh Jen, I am so sorry for you and your family, yet thankful that Roscoe has made it clear to you that he is ready. Roscoe has been such a presence on ODO - I shall miss our houndy-boy. May his passing be peaceful.

Oh Jen, I'll be holding you and Joe in my thoughts. I hate that this day has come, but I'm grateful that Roscoe let you know pretty clearly that he was ready. Wishing all of you a calm, peaceful transition.

I'm so very sorry, Jen. I will be praying for a sweet, peaceful day, and a quiet passing. Roscoe is so special to all of us here and he leaves a legacy none can duplicate. :bawl: He and Freddy will have a great time in heaven. I just know they will be best buddies.

Jen, I'm so sorry. Roscoe really is one in a million. I have fond memories of his "agility' days. Give him a hug and a kiss for me.

Oh Jen, I'm so sorry. There's never enough time with my favorite spotted hound. I'll be thinking of you and Joe, Bella and Scout tonight. Rest well Roscoe buddy.

Thanks, all.

It has been a mostly peaceful day. And my grandparents and nieces stopped by to say good-bye. The girls brought flowers and a letter. My parents are out of town, so they didn't get to see him. :( He's going to be missed by many around here.

The letter says "you are not the only one who misses Roscoe. I miss him alot because I love dogs so much, especially Roscoe! I bet Scout is gona miss Roscoe alot because Roscoe is to old to bother her." :love: She used the GSD sticker because her sister took the "Roscoe sticker."

Oh, Jen. I hope it is a gentle journey for Roscoe. Wishing him the sweetest dreams with apple trees abundant with fruit and gophers and groundhogs galore. Love him so...

Comfort to you, Joe, Bella and Scout.

I am so deeply sorry, Jen. Gosh, I loved your boy! Run free, sweet one. You will be sorely missed by many who never even had the chance to stroke your adorable face.

Oh Jen, I've been so sad all day since seeing the news on fb. I haven't been on ODO in far too long, but I wanted to log in and send my condolences. I had such fun with you and Roscoe those two times, and he was such a lovely, good boy. I know you'll hold your memories close to your heart.

Have been thinking of you all, Jen. I know how much you and Joe must be feeling his absence. How are Bella and Scout doing?

Thank you all! Knowing how much he was loved both near and far means so much to us. He was our ambassador to the world; we know far more people now than we would have without him. He was also an inspiration for how to live life: with generosity, kindness, and forgiveness, mixed with overflowing joy.

Scout was freaked out and took a long time to come in and sniff his bed when he was gone. Bella stayed on her pillow and watched the whole thing, then came over and kissed us, the vet, and the tech. She's mopey today, but Scout is as Scouty as usual.

Kathleen - Joe and I are cracking up that you felt the need to put agility in quotes for Roscoe. rofl

My pets have had similar reactions to both Scout and Bella. It is good they know and are coping.
